Sarah Palin comments in the March issue of Esquire:
Bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie annoy me.
She should surf the intert00bs more. Lots of us use our real names, we’re far from bored and certainly not pathetic. And we don’t lie. Oh and Palin needs to read the emails sent to her from Anchorage Daily New editor. The paper has been trying to end the rumors about Trig with solid facts, and well, Palin’s response:
And I thought, Okay, more indication of continued problems in the world of journalism.
Accurate reporting is a continued problem? I can’t wait to see her and Joe the Plumber do a morning talk show.
Then Alaska’s Frost Lady goes off about the media picking up on her "I can see Russia" comment.
You can! You can see Russia from Alaska. Something like that — a factual statement that was taken out of context and mocked — what you have to do is let that go.
The mainland of Russia is 58 miles away from the mainland of Alaska, though Little Diomede Island off the west coast of Alaska is only 2.5 miles from Russia’s Big Diomede Island. However, um just seeing a foreign country from across a body of water doesn’t really give "insight" into policy issues, which was what Charles Gibson had asked her about. Her answer, not the geography lesson, was the point of the mockery.
And what it all comes down to–and what Palin has been saying along–she was mishandled by the McCain campaign. Oh the inhumanity:
I’d say, Tell the campaign that you’ll be callin’ some of the shots. Don’t just assume that they know you well enough to make all your decisions for ya. Let them know that you’re the CEO of a state, you’re forty-four years old, you’ve got a lot of great life experience that can be put to good use as a candidate.
Um…well, okay then.
